VCF Awards and Medical Care for Out-of-State Responders
Among the brave men and women first responders rushing to the Twin Towers on September 11, 2001, and afterwards, there were groups of out-of-state responders who quickly made their way to the disaster site, when most would have rushed away. In the face of danger, first responders, construction workers, and volunteers from our surrounding states, counties, and towns rushed to aid New York City and its residents, workers, and students. Even as the days and months passed, many out-of-state responders continued to help in the cleanup and recovery at Ground Zero. Turley Hansen & Rosasco, LLP represents many 9/11 first responders’ cancer cases, and these include volunteers from around the country. We know how much their illnesses have impacted their health and lives.
Our WTC lawyers recently represented and won an $819,000 VCF award for a New Jersey volunteer firefighter first responder who was disabled by 9/11 rectal cancer and respiratory diseases.
